Look at the pic....

Snoozing off, head also dropped off! Can you find his helpless head for him ....could have dropped off somewhere because as the saying goes ...."man who sleeps on the job will lose his head too".

How apt this is judging at how this country is run by "sleeping" morons!

Just the other day someone was making a point in the media about Malaysia wages 25 years ago and today.

Then, a starting wage for an engineer was RM2500.00 and now, still is RM2500.00. But, those days RM1.00 could buy you a lot of things but now, not even enough to pay a parking ticket (depends on where you are in Malaysia).

Yeah, still harping on "30% shares" where the majority of the rakyat (working Malaysians) are screwed (paying more Tax / GST soon) and getting poorer by the day!

Porsche 918 Spyder Concept (Geneva Auto Show)

What I really want to say is .... what kind of reviews can "Emas" receive? Can't wait to see if those "balls carrying newspapers" would ever publish if the reviews are not favourable to proton.

Below reviews provided by By Andrew Bornhop Photos by John Lamm

Who said green cars can’t be mean? Not Porsche. On the eve of the Geneva Auto Show, the Stuttgart-based company took the wraps off the 918 Spyder Concept, a 2-seat mid-engine supercar with hybrid and electric drive technology.

Just how fast is this thing? Well, Porsche says the 918 Spyder Concept hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.2 seconds, and it blasts to a top speed of 198 mph. Not only that, it laps the Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds, which means it’s even faster than the hallowed Carrera GT.

Just how green is it? Porsche says that, when driven accordingly, the plug-in hybrid 918 Spyder Concept gets an outstanding 78 mpg, with an emissions level of just 70 grams of C02 per kilometer.

The 918 Spyder Concept is powered by a high-revving V-8 related to the 3.4-liter in the Porsche RS Spyder racing car. In 918 Spyder form, this mid-mounted engine revs to 9200 rpm and produces more than 500 bhp. Electric motors at the front and rear axles add an additional 218 horsepower to the output. The V-8’s power, and that of the rear electric motor, reaches the Spyder Concept’s rear wheels via a 7-speed PDK gearbox. The drive to the front wheels is pure electric, via a fixed ratio. The liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack behind the cockpit can be charged at home, or by brake regeneration.

Porsche 918 Spyder Concept
Four distinct driving modes are available. E Drive is solely electric power, with a range of up to 16 miles. In Hybrid mode, electric power and gasoline power are used as conditions warrant, in ways designed to maximize economy or performance. In Sport Hybrid mode, in which both drive systems maximize performance, most of the power goes rearward, aided by torque vectoring to help the car’s dynamics. Lastly, there’s Race Hybrid mode for the utmost performance, such as running at the limit on the racetrack. In this mode, there’s even a “push to pass” E-Boost feature that feeds in added electrical power for overtaking… or better lap times.

The 918 Spyder’s modular chassis is made of CFP (carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic), while Porsche has also employed lots of magnesium and aluminum to keep the car’s weight down to a reasonably svelte 3285 lb. Aesthetically, the 918 Spyder looks very much like a relative of the Carrera GT. It also looks like it would be perfectly at home on the road or the track. Variable aerodynamics, especially around the rear spoiler, are necessary in a car with such a fast top speed, and the rear hoods extending back from the headrests accommodate retractable air intakes that provide a ram-air function.

Porsche says the interior of the 918 Spyder Concept offers a glimpse of the future, and we’re glad that it remains driver-oriented with circular dial gauges. On the left is one for road speed; in the middle is engine speed (right where it belongs); and on the right is the energy-management gauge. Modernity is addressed via the center console, which has a touch screen for what Porsche calls “intuitive” control of the car’s functions.

Lastly, the 918 Spyder Concept is fitted with a Range Manager. Using the map in the satellite navigation system, the Range Manager displays the remaining range the Spyder is able to cover. And in cities, it will tell you if you can reach your destination on electric power alone. Just the thing to make sure you arrive at the Nürburgring with a full tank.

We admit the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept took us by surprise at Geneva. But we very much like what we see, and the fact that this Porsche has lapped the Nürburgring proves it’s more than a “pie in the sky” concept. It has real production possibilities; and we’re delighted that Porsche sees driving fun as a vital part of its future.

Can Compete Locally Or Not?

How apt of these comments here .... check out here. Hey proud for nothing fellas in the picture .... so called big shots in local proton another-waste-of-public-funds project la .... tax us buyers more la .... go fly kite better la!!!

A car that needs protection in local market after 25 years now want to go global .... hahahaaa. A car that needs bailout by protectionist policy and a car that cannot find global partner now exhibiting in Geneva prestigious motorshow ... hahahahaaaa. Btw, why overseas designers ....after 25 years still cannot design ar???

That's why people in the world think Malaysia is a laughing stock, thanks and no thanks to the policy makers and this oldman is still running the show wanting to put the already shamed proton in the global eyes.

Wah wah wah, you think is play play toys ar .... before bringing to Geneva Motor Show, start KL motor show first la .... and see what are the comments you get ..... don't need to go far just read the comments in Malaysia Insider enough to gauge the potential failure of this proton. And the name of the concept car ... how can they named it "Emas" means gold you know! The whitemen will think gold is definitely not a lousy brand like proton, isn't it? Hmmmm, then Ferrari must be GOd-car la.

The truth is ....a proton car that running on the road after a while will give you all the creaking sound that will drive you bonkers!!! Don't believe, try one today. Go Geneva, phui!

I Am Pissed

How do you find the situation so odd that one after another PKR MPs are starting to jump like frogs. So, alas we all know that it is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY IN THE BANK, huh!

Disagree .... what about those published stories about how this Zzzzrain fella failed in his bid to get a RM2 company of his interest to get a contract to manage a prestigious golf club in Penang that resulted in his quitting PKR?

What about this Saaaaladin fella failed in his bid to get a CEO post that could give him RM50K a month paycheck again did the most holiest thing (to him la) to jump like a frog to the other side?

And there is this fella Faaaruz, a former Penang DCM who quit all his posts in PKR not long ago and now in keris cosplay with Naaahjib (frontpage in most dailies) so proudly become one of the frogs.

All and many of the FROGS have one common issue as I have read somewhere, some publications that claimed they either being investigated by MACC (former ACA, which was no better) or have lost confidence in the party (PKR) leadership. You and I know that the PKR leader is facing second sodomy trial.

How strange .... there is also a claim that they all met up with PM and spouse before quitting. Anyone is welcome to meet PM and spouse but for these frogs, don't you like to think that they are "IN" for something ala golden handshake of a kind, like the previous three frogs from Perak??? Those three old frogs had the same issue before quitting! Right?

Of course, the right thing to say is 'I have lost confident ..... that's why I quit the party and bla bla bla'. Sounds very noble. But I shit in their faces to say that it is all about the money and personal goals.

Do you think that these frogs or potential frogs are in there for the sake of the rakyat, to sweat for the people who voted them in, to serve for the sake of serving .... naaaahhhh! I bet these frogs are all having "red eyes" knowing that being over the "other side" can see Money In The Bank and what a chance to jump when they know 'a chance of a lifetime' comes a knocking when the powers that be are looking for 2/3 majority in parliament.

I am pissed everytime looking at the newspaper that offer me nothing but shit story about these jumping frogs here and there. Even their very faces pissed me off. Shit!
